I hope you are all having a nice weekend!
For those of you who read my MAC and Boots Haul, you will know that I purchased a couple of the MAC Pro Sculpting Creams.
2. Copper Beech
3. Coffee Walnut
These creams are part of their Face and Body collection.
I was really excited about these creams, and I didn't even realise they are limited edition!
What I found great about the MAC Pro Sculpting Creams is that they are different to any other product MAC do. A lot of the time with the new collections they bring out, it's just different colours of product they already do (for example a limited edition lipstick).
I ended up buying 3 of these. The MAC artist at my local MAC counter tried the colour Copper Beech on me and I loved the way it looked. Sadly it was sold out at the counter so I ended up getting it online.
I also bought Naturally Defined online as I thought it would make a nice highlight colour. When I received it though it looked too dark for a highlight. I took it back to my MAC counter and they let me swap it for Accentuate. I thought it was really nice that they let me exchange the product even though I had bought it online. I also picked up Coffee Walnut while I was there.
Here are the colours swatched on my arm:
As you can see the colours are highly pigmented, but they blend out really well.
I apply these using my MAC 215 brush and blend it out with my Real Techniques contour brush.
Both Copper Beech and Coffee Walnut make amazing contour colours that really bring out your cheekbones. Accentuate is a really nice highlight colour.
These products are a cream to powder formula. The colours are quite sheer but you can build them up to make them more intense.
They do last quite well throughout the the day but I wouldn't say they are a long-wearing product, which is perhaps their only down side.
I did tweet about the fact that I think MAC should make these permanent, and they replied saying my comment would be passed on.
The MAC Pro Sculpting Creams are a really unique product and I love that they make my cheekbones look a lot more defined.
The only colour that is sold out online is Coffee Walnut, but all other colours are still available.
Have any of you tried these? What are your favourite products for contouring and highlighting?
